Crunchyroll is streaming the anime, and it describes the story:

The Outclub goes on a journey!

The Outdoor Activities Club, Aka, the Outclub has 3 members. In the countryside of Yamanashi Prefecture, there's a high school named Motosu High School. Go even further to one of the school buildings and you'll find a very laid-back outdoor club that uses one corner of the classroom as their club room.

Kagamihara Nadeshiko finally wants to kill some time in their club room, but then Ohgaki Chiaki and Inuyama Aoi suddenly announce that they're all going on a trip.

They drag the confused Nadeshiko with them and the Outclub hustles all through Yamanashi. The girls enjoy the various local treats as they travel around, but where in the world is the end destination for this trip?!

Masato Jinbo, the director of the main anime's opening animation sequence, is directing the ROOM CAMP anime at C-Station again. Mutsumi Sasaki is returning as character designer and chief animation director. Yoshiaki Kyougoku, the director of the main anime, is supervising the ROOM CAMP anime, and DeNA Contents Planning is producing.

In addition to ROOM CAMP, a second regular television season and a film have been green-lit. The first anime premiered in January 2018, and Crunchyroll streamed the 12-episode series as it aired.
